Could it be that the vehement protests against Donald Trump are the work of the enemy who recognizes the hand of God working to heal our nation? Could it be that God is choosing to use such a seeminly flawed human being to turn our nation back to him? For we Christians who are following the mandate of 2 Chronicles 7:14 — to humble ourselves, to pray, to seek God’s face, and to turn from our evil ways — do we believe that God will do as he says he will — hear us, forgive us, and bring healing our land? Are we really praying for God’s direction in this election process and listening to him rather than to the many voices of praise, condemnation, or protest, no matter where those voices come from or how influential the speaker? I suggest that before we step into the ballot box we turn off the television, internet, and radio and get down on our knees to listen to God alone. Please understand that I am making no claims as to knowing whether or not Donald Trump is God’s choice for the presidency — God could very well have another choice. But nor am I willing to dismiss Trump outright because of a controversial past life, recent terse policy statements, his debate performance, or judgments and analysis of his personality — and even his Christianity — made by others. I am only pointing out that if Christians are to truly engage with God in his plans for this nation it is our responsibility to not listen to our fickle emotions, but only to him who can fulfill needs of his people and their nation. Pray for the welfare of the United States (Jeremiah 29:7).
